Disneyland Paris-It’s A Small World, After All!

Do you know the story behind one of the most iconic songs at Disneyland?

The Story Behind the Song
Originally, Walt Disney envisioned the world’s children singing the national anthem from each country they represented. But he quickly discovered that everyone singing a different tune resulted in a musical cacophony. Walt approached Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman, who were hard at work on Mary Poppins, to create a singular song that could be sung by all of the children. The result was ‘it’s a small world’—one of the most well-known songs of all time.

We only had one day at Disneyland Paris; but I had to ride It’s A Small World twice!

Yes, the fact that it was freezing cold on the day that we were there was additional motivation, but the real reason was that this ride makes me feel so happy!

When I’m on this ride I can’t help but think…Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all get along like the dolls do on the ride?
